An innovative FPS Shooter!

Wow. Just wow...

I was gifted this game from a friend on Steam. I wasn't really expecting much, as I have been gifted quite a few bad games before, but this was not the case.

Immediately after installing the game, I played the tutorial (or training) which was pretty cool. After leaving the tutorial and entering the mutliplayer, I was delighted to see that this was no generic military shooter, oh no.

This is a brutal game that doesn't require quick reaction times, but critical and smart thinking. You don't just get shot, stay behind cover for a few seconds and then be at full health again. You get shot, you die. Simple. It, as you can imagine, this can be frustrating at times, but it requires you to be patient and think tactically and not just go running into the battle field guns blazing, a la Rambo. In the end, you feel so satisfied and it is extremely rewarding to win a game!

The guns don't sound like a child sneezing, it sounds like a FUCKING gun. The battlefield is loud and it sounds scary as shit. The sound is clear and it is great.

There are quite a few game-modes to play at the moment and you probably wont enjoy all of them and will probably just stick to the one or two that you really enjoy.

The community is great and it is such a blast to work with other people and the team actually communicates with each other and works together to complete the objective. It is, unfortunately, rare to find this in an FPS these days. The developers are also great, with frequent updates, patches and added content for free. They listen to the community and pay attention to the players. The devs are a perfect example of what a developer should be doing.

I am very happy to tell you that I haven't actually found any glitches or any game breaking bugs. The A.I is pretty stupid, but it IS a multiplayer focused game, so it is pretty understandable. I have had a few framerate issues, especially when in or near some "corn fields" (I forgot what they are called). Fortunately, there aren't many flaws in the game.

But overall, this game is a breath of fresh air in the FPS gaming category and is something that I will be comparing future FPS's to. It is innovative, challenging and most importantly, fun. A great gaming experience overall.

I will rate this game a 10/10 game ANY day of the week.
